Losers of five straight, the Pirates visit their house of horrors in Milwaukee, facing a Brewers team in need of a few wins, too.

Steven Brault will make his second Major League start of the season. Named the International League’s most valuable pitcher for 2017, Brault hasn’t had quite the same success in the majors, with a 15 runs allowed (12 earned) in 18 2-3 innings across one five-inning start and a few scattered relief appearances.

The lineups:


  1. Starling Marte, LF
  2. Adam Frazier, 2B
  3. Andrew McCutchen, CF
  4. Josh Bell, 1B
  5. Gregory Polanco, RF
  6. Sean Rodriguez, 3B
  7. Elias Diaz, C
  8. Jordy Mercer, SS
  9. Steven Brault, P
